Parents' Association

Families are an active part of our community and culture. Parents and grandparents are invited to join classes on field trips as well as come into the classroom as guest readers and project coordinators. With the help of the Parents’ Association the school hosts a variety of at-school and out-of-school events to bring the community together including:

  • Annual Benefit
  • Grandparents’ Day
  • Fall Family Fun Day
  • Winter Family Fun Day
  • VIP Day
  • Sibling Workshops
  • Annual Art and Science Exhibits
  • Musical Performances
  • Screen Free Week: Teachers, students and families work together to come up with fun ways to lessen our dependence on TV and other electronic devices and increase family time.

In true Gillen Brewer spirit, every Gillen Brewer parent is a member of the school's Parents' Association. The Parents' Association is led by three co-chairs and a leadership team of committee chairs. A group of ten parent volunteers act as Class Representatives (one for each class), providing significant services for the school including assistance with programmatic initiatives and fundraising activities.
